If email messages are a key part of your electronic communication with business colleagues or family members, it would be better if you used an email with your own domain name
and an email provider that offers support for the POP3 and IMAP email retrieval protocols, rather than relying on a web-based service that entails restrictions with regard to the size of the attachments. Thus, you’ll be able to access your email accounts on any desktop or mobile device using any software program – Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, and so forth. With the IMAP protocol, you will be able to examine the email messages at your end, but they will be on the server at all times, whereas with the POP3 protocol, all email messages will be downloaded on the device, unless you choose a copy to be saved on the server. What’s more, you’ll be able to make use of many other handy options – contact groups, calendars, and so on, not to mention that if there’s a brief problem with your Internet access, you can still check your email messages as they’ll be on your desktop or mobile device.
